Partners

University of Exeter

As the lead partner, the University of Exeter will be responsible for ensuring the successful delivery of the Smartline project. The University will also lead on the research aspects of the project, working with all the project partners and businesses to analyse and interpret data sets, to inform new products, processes and services and identifying needs and service gaps.

The Smartline project will build upon the University’s research which explores how where we live impacts our health and wellbeing. Ultimately, the project hopes to be able to use information both to inform and predict potential health and wellbeing issues.

The Smartline project office team are based at the Medical School’s European Centre for Environment & Human Health, based at the University’s Truro Campus in Cornwall.
Please visit the Research page for more detailed information on the research themes.

Cornwall Council

The Smartline project is an exciting partnership opportunity for Cornwall Council to be involved in.

We are currently transforming services to help us improve the health and wellbeing of residents and this project will help us gather insight into people’s needs and the environment in which they live and enable residents to influence improvements that meet their needs and ensure their homes are energy efficient.

The potential for businesses to use this information to help them design products and services contributes to our plans for growth and prosperity in Cornwall.

Volunteer Cornwall

Our role is to actively engage the communities in the CPIR area through the use of the guided conversations.

Volunteer Cornwall will support the development of social action and volunteering via a diverse range of community members. Working closely with local community groups we will encourage participation, signpost to relevant services and develop volunteer opportunities for community members to be involved in.

We will make volunteering a fundamental part of the Smartline project and will encourage and support project teams to recruit and support volunteers in order to help the project to succeed.

If you are interested in helping us to make difference by offering your time as a volunteer please contact: Karen Spooner Smartline Community Development Manager on 07968 706114 or karens@volunteercornwall.org.uk for further information.
